THE “Oriental Geography” of Sir W. Ouseley is a translation of a Persian work called Súru-l Buldán, “Pictures of Countries,” compiled from the works of Istakhrí and Ibn Haukal. It con­tains little or nothing that is not to be found in these writers. Ouseley's MS., moreover, was very faulty. The work is of small value now that its original sources are available, and it seems quite unnecessary to quote it here. The authorship of this work was at one time a subject of great dispute, but a passing allusion to the disscusion is all that is needed now that the question is set at rest.
